Question about 1995 Yamaha FZR 600

1 Answer

95 fzr making a knocking sound as i drive.

I have recently noticed a knocking sound coming from my fzr. standing still sounds normal. revving the engine sounds bogged. when i shift gears there is a loud clunk. I know from nuetral to first is normal, but it happens at almosst every gear change, up or down, unles im very "gentle" with the change. the knocking occurs while im driving. doesnt happen with the clutch disengaged ( handle pulled in) and i rev the engine. only happend with clutch engaged (handle released) and while im driving. sounds louder at a constant rpm, less with engine brake. ive seen a video of rod bearing out, with a rapid knocking that fluctuates with the engine revs. mine is a slower knocking, that slowly speeds up and drops down when i shift up. its nerve wrecking to hear and feel through the pedals, but i have to get to work. any ideas?

If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.

2. Belts---CHIRP

SOURCE: Emergency break pedal stuck to floor, but break is disengaged

sounds like your brake cable has broken or there is something damaged in the pedal assembly.........try pulling on the release handle and move the e-brake pedal back to its off position by hand at the same time.(you may have to tie it in this position to keep it up)If that doesnt work there is a sensor on the pedal assembly that you should be able to bypass by either disconecting the wire(1 wire system) or connecting the two wires together (2 wire system)Especially if your truck is a standard the e-brake is an important safety feature,so if these steps fix the light and dinging problem you should still take the steps to have it repaired.
hope this helps.........Good Luck!

SOURCE: Thump, clunk

If the steering head bearings are bad you might feel a click when you pull on the wheel. If you can get the front tire in the air by putting the bike on a jack (and securing it there), pull forward on the front wheel. There should be zero movement front to back. If you feel some then either your steering head bearings are bad or your wheel bearings. While the bike is in the air, turn the handlebars slowly back and forth. Often you can feel a "notch" if the SHB are bad.
